Welp, Virginia is screwed
« on: November 06, 2019, 08:30:48 AM »
https://www.wavy.com/news/politics/virginia-politics/democrats-promise-swift-action-after-historic-win-in-virginia/

Oh, look and what do Democrats do when they get power:

Quote
Democratic leaders said Virginians should expect a higher minimum wage, new gun restrictions and greater abortion rights after their party flipped control of the state House and Senate in Tuesday’s election. They also promised ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment, making Virginia the final state needed for possible passage of the gender equality measure.


Total Democrat party rule works so well in Illinois, err...California, err... New Jersey, err... New York....
I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you also were meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought

Welcome to the Ill-annoying Californicationing of Virginia.

For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity, that they may be without excuse. Because knowing God, they didn’t glorify him as God, and didn’t give thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

One party in charge, regardless of party usually screws things up to the Nth degree. Special interests get what they want.

I'm not all doom and gloom yet. Survive two years and see. My state senator is gone, mostly harmless Dem in Va-25, now an independent idiot. Should make that seat competitive next time. Freitas write in campaign worked, so that's good. Small majority and an incompetent governor who's normal chain of succession is damaged goods.

The national news takeaway is zomg blue wave! No, the VA Republicans are like special Olympics kids trying to play a mean spirited Harlem Globetrotters. The Dems put forth a candidate in almost every district. Republicans spotted them a ton of uncontested races. The state needs national support like what is happening on the blue side. Overall more Republican votes than Dem, so the state is very much in play nationally. Oh, and can we give DC their land back? :)

Overall, I hope I can survive it. My family has pre revolution roots in this state. Not worried about gun laws. Worried about minimum wage, stupid energy policy, and unions. Those will make me leave the state because I can't maintain a passable existence while not complying with whatever gun laws.

The government used the membership roster for their first round of Red Flag raids.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Ann Coulter was prescient:

http://www.anncoulter.com/columns/2017-11-15.html

Yep, simple situational awareness and math should convince conservatives, libertarians, Republicans and anyone not onboard with the progressive agenda that high immigration = permanent progressive/liberal/Democrat control.

Yet, most on the right live in a delusion and apparently find math too hard.

When we lived there, the VCDL was strong and the state was a gun friendly one, certain cities excepted. I was an active member, went to most events and worked the VCDL table at MANY a gun show. Miss those guys and tried to join a group similar group here but none even close to that strong existed.

Rather appropriate, because the absolute leftist domination of higher education is part of why Virginia is screwed.

The gun violence that's at historic lows? (Much lower, if we subtract suicides.)

While I think the UVA decision was wrong and stupid, at least they didn't mess with Memorial Day.  I think some of the people taking great offense are conflating Veterans' Day and Memorial Day.  Veterans' Day is for the living; Memorial Day is for the dead.  (and there's also Armed Forces Day for those currently serving, but it doesn't get much recognition)

I’m totally agree with you on this.  I hate out two party system and wish we had at least 3 so there would have to be some negotiation to gain a majority.

We urgently need a viable third party. The problem is, the process of getting enough people to build up a viable third party would result in the country having only one viable party, not three ... or even two.
